About the Author 作者简介

Carolyn McCarthy:

Carolyn McCarthy specializes in travel, culture and adventure in the Americas. She has written for National Geographic, Outside, BBC Magazine, Boston Globe and other publications. A former Fulbright fellow and Banff Mountain Grant recipient, she has documented life in the most remote corners of Latin America.

Regis St Louis:

Regis grew up in a small town in the American Midwest—the kind of place that fuels big dreams of travel—and he developed an early fascination with foreign dialects and world cultures. He spent his formative years learning Russian and a handful of Romance languages, which served him well on journeys across much of the globe. Regis has contributed to more than 50 Lonely Planet titles, covering destinations across six continents. His travels have taken him from the mountains of Kamchatka to remote island villages in Melanesia, and to many grand urban landscapes. When not on the road, he lives in New Orleans.

Sandra Bao:

Being born in Buenos Aires has made Sandra a portena (BA citizen) for life.

She left Argentina for the United States at age nine, with thoughts that 'Midnight Special' and 'Yellow Submarine' were creations of Argentine musicians. Now she knows the harsh truth, but remains proud of her original country's famous steaks, futbol and tango.

Sandra has traveled extensively throughout the world, but especially loves Patagonia's Andean spine.

She's the author of Lonely Planet's Buenos Aires guide and has contributed to Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela and several other titles.

Celeste Brash:

Living on a remote coral atoll for five years with no phone, plumbing and limited solar electricity prevented Celeste from getting an early start in her writing career - although it sounds idyllic, washing laundry by hand, digging your own well and sustenance fishing takes a big chunk out of one's day. She now lives in a small village on Tahiti, complete with flushing toilet and an Internet connection, and her travel articles have magically crossed the seas to appear in newspapers and magazines including the LA Times and Islands Magazine. She has contributed to around 40 Lonely Planet guidebooks and her award winning travel narratives have been published in Travelers' Tales anthologies. Having travelled to some 40 countries, Celeste speaks fluent French as well as conversational Spanish, Thai and Indonesian.  In her spare time she can be found singing with a French Tahitian choral group, Tahitian dancing or distance swimming in Tahiti's spectacular lagoon. You can find Celeste on the web at www.celestebrash.com or read her blog at htpp://coconutradio.blogspot.com.                

Gregor Clark:

Gregor Clark is a US-based writer whose love of foreign languages and curiosity about what's around the next bend have taken him to dozens of countries on five continents. Chronic wanderlust has also led him to visit all 50 states and most Canadian provinces on countless road trips through his native North America.

Since 2000, Gregor has regularly contributed to Lonely Planet guides, with a focus on Europe and the Americas. Titles include Italy, France, Brazil, Costa Rica, Argentina, Portugal, Switzerland, Mexico, South America on a Shoestring, Montreal & Quebec City, France Trips, New England Trips, cycling guides to Italy and California and coffee-table pictorials such as Food Trails, The USA Book and The LP Guide to the Middle of Nowhere.

A polyglot since early childhood, Gregor earned his degree in Romance Languages at Stanford University and has remained an avid linguist throughout careers in international publishing, teaching, translation and tour leadership. He continues to favor destinations such as Brazil and Italy where he can hit the streets speaking the local vernacular, but he's also cycled around Bali, swum with penguins and sharks in the Galapagos, trekked in the Himalayas, repaired his bike with duct tape in the middle of the Wyoming desert, cruised the icy shores of Greenland and published articles about places as far-flung and disparate as Tonga and North Dakota.

Gregor was born in New York City. He has lived in California, France, Spain and Italy prior to settling with his wife and two daughters in his current home state of Vermont.

Kevin Raub:

Kevin Raub is a Portugal-based travel and entertainment journalist and certified Brazilianist who grew up in Atlanta and started his career in entertainment in New York, working for Men's Journal and Rolling Stone magazines and "freelancing" (i.e. interviewing hot young actresses about their sex lives over a few too many cocktails) for men's magazines like FHM, Stuff and Maxim. He spent five years in Los Angeles as the senior writer for allstarnews.com, CDNOW's now-defunct  groundbreaking online music news site.

The rock 'n' roll lifestyle took its toll, so he needed an extended vacation and took up travel writing. Raub now contributes to a variety of publications including Travel+Leisure, New York Times T Travel, Robb Report, Town & Country, American Way, Rhapsody, Private Clubs, Continental, New York Post, and Organic Spa (www.organicspamagazine.com), where he pens a bi-monthly organic grooming column for men, The Green Guy's Grooming Guide.

Raub spent seven years on Brazilian soil, canvassing the South American Giant one caipirinha at a time on his way to getting to know 22 Brazilian states for a variety of American and international publications. A well-known Brazil expert, he also handled all of Lonely Planet's on-the-ground social media coverage during the FIFA 2014 World Cup before relocating to Portugal the following year.

Raub is the co-author of numerous Lonely Planet travel guides, including Brazil (7th Ed.; 2008), Mexico (11th Ed.; 2008); Chile & Easter Island (8th Ed.; 2009), The Carolinas, Georgia & The South: Trips (1st Ed.; 2009); Colombia (5th Ed.; 2009), Lonely Planet's Best In Travel 2010 (2nd Revised Edition, 2009); South America on a Shoestring (11th Ed.; 2010); Venezuela (6th Ed.; 2010), Central America on a Shoestring (7th Ed.; 2010), Brazil (8th Ed.; 2010); India (14th Ed.; 2011), South India & Kerala (6th Ed.; 2011), Discover India (1st Ed.; 2011); Dominican Republic & Haiti (5th Ed.; 2011), Caribbean Islands (6th Ed.; 2011), USA (7th Ed.; 2011), Eastern USA (1st Ed.; 2011), Discover USA (1st Ed.; 2011), Colombia (6th Ed., 2012), Chile & Easter Island (9th Ed., 2012), Peru (8th Ed., 2013), South America on a Shoestring (12th Ed., 2013), Discover Peru (2nd Ed., 2013), India (15th Ed., 2013), Discover India (2nd Ed., 2013 and Brazil (9th Ed., 2013); and the forthcoming Dominican Republic (6th Ed., 2014), Discover Caribbean Islands (1st.

On the few days he's home, Raub once spent an inordinate amount of time slathering on organic cosmetics for his bi-monthly organic grooming column for men, The Green Guy's Grooming Guide, which appeared in Organic Spa for several years, but constant battles with the Brazilian food and drug administration caused it to meet its demise in 2011. Now, he just slathers it on for fun.

Raub also scoured Brazilian soil as the 'Brazil Insider' for LAN and TAM airlines' Only in South America blog (www.lan.com/onlyinsouthamerica/blog) for a few years as well.

Raub continues pounding the world's pavements with one goal in mind: Membership in the Traveler's Century Club before the age of 50. His country count currently stands at 83.
